Rumor: New Mega Man Legends Looking Likely

Here’s a brief summary of what’s been happening on this front up until now:

 

Ex-Capcom designer and director of Bayonetta, Hideki Kamiya, met with Rockman DASH — aka Mega Man Legends — creator, Yoshinori Kawano, at the Tokyo Game Show. When Kamiya brought the subject of a new Mega Man Legends game up, Kawano replied with a grin without actually revealing anything.

 

After reporting his experience on Twitter, Kamiya then followed up by saying that Legends fans would have reason to be happy soon.

 

Cut to two days ago. Protodude’s Rockman Corner, known for obtaining Mega Man information prior to official announcements in the past, are reporting that an anonymous source, previous responsible for bringing them details on Mega Man 9, has confirmed to them that a Mega Man Legends sequel is indeed in development at Capcom.

 

This new project, the mysterious source reveals, has no working title yet but is considered the next game in the Legends series. He mentions that the project is “very tight lipped” and expects Capcom to make an official announcement after their focus shifts away from Mega Man Universe.

 

Legends 3? It could happen. Head of Capcom R&D and Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune, has consistently stated in the past that he would like to see the Legends line continue. And hey, Tron Bonne’s making a comeback in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, too…

    Noooo I want X9!

    Nah it’s OK, Legends fans have been waiting longer then I have. If they do announce MML3 it’ll give me a good excuse to go back and play MML 1&2 for the first time.

    Good god *falls to knees* it’s happening, rar, what planets could have aligned to make such a thing possible!

  • PersonaBull

    First: Yessss! Day one purchase no matter what. Even just for nostalgia’s sake. No matter what they put out, MML3 will be entertaining at least.
    Second: Maybe they’ll reverse that decision to cancel the PSP port of MML1 and 2′s localization while they’re at it <3

    That’d be really cool, but I reserve my judgment until gameplay is shown

    Oh god, this is not something to joke about, I have been waiting years and years for this.

  • shion16

    • animaster

      • shion16

    gives me a good excuse to play through megaman legends 1 and 2 again

  • EvilAkito

    I bet it’ll be a mobile phone game.

    • BK0000

      They already made a Legends game for phones a couple years ago. It’s called Rockman Dash: Great Five Island Adventure.

  • goronyan

    Okay, who sold their soul? That’s about the only way I expect this could’ve happened.

  • kupomogli

    I’ll get it day one if Capcom announces BoF6 before its release(if any of Capcom employees are reading this.) Otherwise I’ll get it when it gets a price drop like I do all other releases. I have enough of a backlog. Though I can say this is one I’ll really want to play and I hope they don’t screw it up. I really love the other two Mega Man Legends.

    • ShinNoKami

      XD;; not happening. I remember reading somewhere that Dragon Quarter would be the last BOF game.

    What will you fanboys do when they announce Ninja Theory’s taking care of this one too?

    (actually I’m half-expecting Level 5 to be in charge of this)

    • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

      Level 5 = tons of exploration

      I’d be all for that :P

    • Pesmerga00

      Wasn’t there an interview with Inafune saying that he was working with Level 5 in the future? If so that could be a nice collaboration.

      And while people’s wishes are being granted, I request a new Breath of Fire. They can start when they’re done with MML3

      I found it :) http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/09/22/capcom_level5_team_up/

    • thebanditking

      NT working on Mega Man, oh dear God no lol. Though if your prediction is correct I will be ecstatic, Level 5 would be perfect for this kind of title.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

    Yeah, with the recent Mega Man love going on, I could certainly see them continuing to ride this train by pushing out MML3 after MMU. It seems likely, but I’ll be cautiously optimistic, heh.

    I’d definitely like to see what they can do with Legends using the PS3 hardware though :)

    A third Parasite Eve, a third Marvel vs Capcom, being able to play the third Yakuza…if this comes out I will be forever happy.

    OH GOD IM SO GIDDY.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/SplashdownTiger STiger

    I thought they already confirmed a Legends 3?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YC4RM464EFGQXP4UNBFHYEUNI4 Ryujin

    Megaman Legends 3, Misadventures of Tron Bonne 2, Megaman X9 and Breath of Fire 6 please :)

  • capristrider

    How about releasing the PSone originals on PSN or the PSP’s Mega Man Legends bundle in the west?
    Great news BTW!

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    Well, you know old saying: “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
    Don’t want to be excited for something that may or may not be happening.

  • ShinNoKami

    HAAH HAAH HAAH HAAH YES! OH GODS YES!

    …Of course, I’ll never get to play it due to lack of a current gen console but HEY! I STILL WANT IT TO HAPPEN!
